Update: People has even more pics from the movie. Check them out below.

It looks like Oscar-winning costume designer Eiko Ishioka has been working overtime on Tarsem's upcoming and still-untitled Snow White movie. This summer we got our first look at Lily Collins in the lead role, outfitted in a pretty elaborate and eye-catching dress and now, the first images of Julia Roberts as the evil Queen have arrived from Entertainment Weekly and Yahoo. She's going to need the seven dwarves just to carry the train on that thing.

With the release date looming just five short months from now, Tarsem is under the gun to get his film finished but if these latest pics prove anything, it's that despite having a rival film "Snow White And The Huntsman" over at Universal that's currently shooting, these two movies will be worlds apart. From the set pics that have leaked so far for 'Huntsman' it essentially looks like "Robin Hood" starring Bella Swan, but Relativity's picture will strike a tone between adventure and comedy, with Snow White teaming up with a pack of seven dwarfs to take on her evil stepmother who has destroyed the kingdom and killed her father.

“She’s the cat that ate the canary,” Tarsem told EW about the Queen in the film adding, “She outsources her evil, just like most people. I wanted a person who is just schizophrenic. She’s a person who would just do all the evil she needs to do to stay in power.”

The strong cast is rounded out by Sean Bean as the King, Armie Hammer as Prince Andrew Alcott and Nathan Lane as the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton. You can take a look at the first pics of Hammer and Lane below as well, and is it just us, or does Collins look a lot like Audrey Hepburn here? Anyway, the movie is moving quickly towards its March 16, 2012 release date and we presume at some point, somebody will give it a name.
